8:01 am
trial for man clauslaughtemansl conrad murray talks. i family. steve jobs has been laid to rest. now hearing about some of the important people in his life. we take you inside the private world of the tech visionary who changed the way we lived "early" this saturday morning, october 8th, 2011. captioning funded by cbs good morning. welcome to new york city on an absolutely stunning fall morning. we welcome you to "the early show." i'm russ mitchell. >> that was just picture perfect. >> beautiful. >> hopefully you're seeing that where you are. i'm betty nguyen, in for rebecca jarvis. >> we will talk about health plans. open enrollment is coming up.
8:02 am
we will try to put you in the right direction. >> do you know there are certain things on your resume are a dead give-away to your age and may not be positive when it comes to looking for a job so we will show you how to age-proof your resume. >> and good food is coming up in the broadcast. let's begin with the top story. republican presidential hopeful rick perry is distancing comments he made friday of rifle mitt romney. whit johnson is in washington with the latest. >> reporter: the first primary voting about three months away, candidates are here in washington for the values voters summit and trying to shore up support from their conservative base but for mitt romney it may not be easy. after endorsing governor rick perry. >> he is a genuine follower of jesus christ. >> reporter: texas pastor robert jeffress called mitt romney's mormon faith a cult. >> i believe mitt romney is a
8:03 am
good moral person, has a wonderful family but that is not what makes you a christian. >> reporter: perry later responded to the controversy but yvonevangelical concerns have plagued romney. the events friday unfolded after romney developing a rousing foreign policy speech in south carolina. >> if you do not want america to be the strongest nation on earth, i'm not your president. you have that president today. >> reporter: the pastor's comments come at an awkward time for perry who slipped in the polls. at the summit perry was talking tough on immigration. >> there is no homeland security without border security. let me repeat that. there is no security without border security. >> reporter: so far the romney campaign has had no response to
8:04 am
jeffress comments but romney defended his religion four years ago saying mormons are christians. many are watching to see if he does it again when he speaks later today. >> whit johnson, thank you very much. also in washington is tony perkins, president of the family research council, one of the summit's main sponsor. do you agree with reverend jeffress that the mormon faith is a cult? >> there is a sgings between christianity and mormonism. our focus is not build a national church but, rather, a coalition. the momon community has been a great partnership as we have worked to build upon the traditional values that we share in common. marriage, family, life, and as to it's a good partnership and people are looking here at this event where candidates stand on the issues. that is the real focus. >> when he heard the reverend say that did you agree with
8:05 am
that. >> well, i didn't hear it. he didn't say it from the platform. i think he said that in an interview later with a reporter and that is not what -- we're not here to describe one religion or another. we are looking to build coalitions and partnerships and, again, i said there is a theological difference between mormonism and christianity. i don't want to go all over that. that is not our point. our point is building a winning coalition of conservatives who want to see america put back on the right road. mitt romney has arctticulated positions over the last four years. strong on the life issue, strong on traditional marriage, strong on the family. he is going to come again. he has been at the values voters summit every year and i believe he will articulate those issues again. >> is there anything that mitt romney can say to get the support of evangelicals? >> i think when they look to get behind in this election they are
8:06 am
looking at the issues. i think there is a greater level of comfort when someone shares the same faith background that you have, but that is -- ultimately, what we are looking for is a candidate who will be able to take on this president, who has strong positions on life, on marriage, on family, national defense, strong economy. whoever that candidate is, that can articulate those positions, as long as they have a heartbeat i think they can beat this president. >> in your mind now, is rick perry that candidate? >> i think the jury is still out and that is part of what is happening this weekend as all of the candidates come and speak, lay out their vision for america. arctticulate their positions. you know, it's interesting, as i've been mingle being among those that are there, almost 3,000 people registered this year. we are hearing you know, some like this candidate and some like that candidate. we will have a straw poll today and we will see if there is a consensus. >> final question now.
8:07 am
the civil rights group, the southern public law center has urged to boycott your summit saying you spread rumors about the gay community. the same group that labeled your organization as a hate group last year. what is your response to that? >> well, the southern law center sha shown themselves to be an anti-christian organization because people hold views of traditional morale it's, they want to label them. they are nothing more than a money raising machine off the homosexual community to demonize people who sl sexual values. >> tony perkins, thanks so much. appreciate it. >> thanks. now to the economy. the september unemployment figures are out. 103,000 jobs were added, but the total includes 45,000 verizon workers who were rehired after going on strike. the labor department counted those as job gains. but the nation's unemployment rate remains at 9.1% for the
8:08 am
third consecutive month. for the last three years, the rate has averaged 9.3%. so is it possible this could be the new normal? joining us is jack otter. thanks for being with us, jack. >> great to be here. >> we added 103,000 new jobs for september. not too bad but when you look at it on the whole, i understand in order to get to prerecession levels we have to add 250,000 jobs per month the next two and a half years, is that right? >> exactly. even if we get to that number we wouldn't have full employment until 2016. we were actually there in the private sector on friday. we added 137,000 jobs over the last month. but government lost 34,000 jobs. and that is another story that is going on here. since 2008, the government has
8:09 am
lost more than 500,000 jobs at the federal, state, and local level. as the private sector doesn't have the command to keep up with job growth, government firing means it's even worse than it was. >> can we get to the level of 250,000 jobs per month the next two and a half years? >> here is the situation i don't think most people understand. for decades consumers were spending late more money than they had and treating their houses as atms so demand was here. when the crash came we knew it didn't exist. demand is here. that difference is unemployment. until we can grow demand organically without using our houses as atms we won't get back to where we need to be. >> you're saying high unemployment is here to stay? >> for some time, fight quite a few years. eventually, we are going to
8:10 am
realize we are not building enough houses and more demand and bring people back to work banging nails but it takes time to get there. >> any particular fields we might see the new jobs? >> we are becoming a service economy. this has been happening for a long time. health care is the most obvious service. a demographic trend and people are getting older and need health care and if the affordable health care comes on line, 30 million people need health care and a lot of nurses and physicians to take care of those people. >> seasonal hiring will that boost the numbers? >> that is the problem with seasonal, it's seasonal. the retailers expect to hire more people this holiday season which is good news. macy's will hire 175,000 people and some translate to full-time jobs. toys "r" us said they are in that. >> is government debt weighing down the jobs market? >> in many ways p first of all,
8:11 am
there is the psychological thing. over and over again on television on the website and in the newspaper you hear about this deficit so everyone knows the overhang is there and the way it should work in good times, the government runs a surplus so that in bad times, it can spend money to prime the pump until things turn around again. with a deficit 1.3 trillion, the government just doesn't have that much to spend, plus there is obvious political gridlock. the way washington is going, it's not going to happen. >> it's a bleak picket but hopefully we can stay positive. jack otter, thanks for being with us. >> those anti-wall street protests are spreading across the country but the anger is spilling over into issues such as corporate political power and the soaring cost of health care. cbs news correspondent michelle miller is on wall street where the protests began. >> reporter: this is how it starts.
8:12 am
every day protests wake up from a sleep in the heart of the financial district and begin a new day ready to speak up and speak out. here in new york, the protesters call "occupy wall street" where the movement is picking up steam around the nation and it's become occupied together. this week, demonstrations held from los angeles to richmond, virginia to downtown minneapolis. >> we are here we want the big dudes to start paying! >> reporter: with more scheduled this weekend in cities like indianapolis. one website claims in over a hundred cities. downtown manhattan that started is it it all is attracting a steady trem of onlookers and reinforcements including michelle snyder who stops by every day on her lunch hour. >> it's the economy going into such a downturn. we want our middle class back. >> reporter: this week, unions join the protests marching through the financial district
8:13 am
during rush hour wednesday. by late evening, police and protesters clashed. 23 were arrested. >> they are basically sending us a message that says don't create a society in america where 1% has basically all of the wealth. >> reporter: frustration over the gap between the wealthy and the middle class is one theme here but there is many messages as there are cardboard signs spread along the sidewalk. those who came by, curious to figure out the point of the protesters seemed a bit confused. >> most of them just kind of hanging out. it doesn't look like -- it doesn't look like they are doing too much. >> reporter: but there is no sign the protesters here or elsewhere are packing up their signs any time soon. >> there is no ending date. there is no dig nated time limits ending. it's growing every day. >> reporter: as long as they abide by the law, they can stay here as long as they like.
8:14 am
russ? >> michelle miller in downtown manhattan on wall street, thank you so much. joining for us a closer look at these protesters is michael daly. michael, good morning to you. we heard the young laid in the piece saying we want the big dudes to pay but a potpourri of things going on down there. what are the folks trying to accomplish? >> you saw in the report there, i think it's not so much with what they are trying to accomplish is what they are trying to express. i mean, the one thing that runs through all of them is that a feeling that there is just a fundamental unfairness in from their point of view, the vem people who almost wrecked the u.s. economy and wall street continue to get wealthy while working people are struggling to pay their bills. i think it comes down to that. >> another lady in the piece saying there is no deadline here, no call to go home and no end date for this. what will it take, do you think, for the protesters, not only on
8:15 am
wall street but all of them to pack up and go home. >> it's it's going to get cold. i think the friend for the policemen is weather. there is talk this morning that maybe they will move to washington square which does have a curfew and end things rather abruptly, i think. if they stay there, i think they could probably keep going. >> president obama said he understood them and house majority public leaders called them a growing mobs on friday. what do these types of comments do to the protesters in terms of their resolve? >> you know, the people are talking about them. i mean, you know, if nobody was talking about them, i think that would probably send them home but if you have the president of the united states acknowledging you and if you had the republicans calling you a mob, then you're really starting a conversation which is -- there, they are accomplishing something. >> you're sympathetic to the protesters. you wrote this week they are being arrested and being
8:16 am
handcuffed by arrests but people they are protesting have not been handcuffed. >> sympathetic in the sense there is an unfairness you can wreck the u.s. economy and you don't end up in economy but if you make a left-hander on the brooklyn bridge, you get collared. it's not a question of law enforcement, it's a question of the law. the law is very clear. if you go and block traffic, you're going to get arrested. the law is not so clear if you're a rating agency and you inflate the agencies to get more business. >> are you surprised this movement has gotten so large? >> not really. i just -- you know, most people -- i mean, the least american thing is unfairness. i mean, the whole country got started with fairness. the original tea party was all about fairness. the constitution, there is a document about fairness and if there is a wide feeling there is unfairness, then, you know, it shouldn't surprise anybody. >> michael daly, appreciate your insight. thanks a lot.
8:17 am
16 past the hour. here is betty. for the first time, jurors in the manslaughter trial of michael jackson's doctor heard from the defendant himself. prosecutors played an audiotape of dr. conrad murray's initial questioning by detectives. cbs news correspondent bill whitaker reports. >> reporter: dr. conrad murray listened along with the rest of the courtroom as he spoke on the tape of his relationship to michael jackson and what happened the day the pop star died. made public for the first time, this was the story dr. murray told detectives just two days after jackson's death. he asserted that he had been trying to wean jackson off a supposed addiction to the anesthetic propofol, a drug jackson referred to as "milk."
8:18 am
>> he believed in michael jackson was chemically dependent but he continued to provide him with the drugs. he says that he is the person that really tried to wean him off of these drugs but he continued to order gallon after gallon of propofol. >> reporter: murray said he had given jackson a low dose of propofol two nights prior and none the night before but on the day jackson died after regular sedatives failed to put the singer to sleep, murray said he did administer a small dose of propofol. >> i came back to his bedside and he was breathing. immediately, i felt for a pulse. his body was warm and then i went to ventilate him directly mouth to mouth. >> there is something that the defense can take from this because, to an extent, conrad murray allowed to humanize himself without being subjected to cross-examination. >> reporter: there will be more of murray's tape played for jurors when court resumes next week. bill whitaker, cbs news, los angeles.
8:19 am
>> that interview just really interesting. gallon after gallon of propofol? >> the defense has yet to make its case so we will hear more. it will be a more rounded case the next few days. >> not over by any stretch of the imagination. >> let's go to elaine quijano with the rest of today's news. rebel forces in libya have launched a huge offensive on the city of sirt the hometown of moammar gadhafi. anti-gadhafi forces are less than half a mile from sirte. residents have fled the city. libya's new leaders say the fall of the city will allow them to declare rib laliberation and se elections. no sign of a 10-month-old girl who disappeared from her home on tuesday. fbi agents searched a landfill looking for lisa irwin. her parents claim the baby was abducted from her crib in the

good morning. welcome back, everybody. as we said earlier, the september unemployment number remains unchanged at 9.1% for the third month in a row. there are about 14 million americans counted as unemployed. older people spend the most time looking for a job averaging just over 52 weeks. so if you are one of them, now is a good time to make sure your resume is age-proof and joining us now to talk about that is nicole williams, linkedin connection director. thanks for being with us. >> my pleasure. >> this is your first point of contact with a potential employer and because dates are involved, they can very easily assess how hold you are and if this person has some hesitation around hiring an older worker, at this point, they can clearly deny, take you out of the pile when really you haven't had a chance to interview. >> oh, my goodness. so let's go through some of the do's and don't's.
8:42 am
you talk about things in there that give away your age. i assume your graduation date would do that? >> absolutely. a lot of hiring managers could have been born in that year. it's just one of those dates that isn't necessary. it's one of the things that is commonly thought to be true but you don't have to have it on there. no, you don't need to. don't put it on. >> aren't you being deceiving by not putting it on there? isn't it important to know when you've graduated and how long you've been out of school? >> it doesn't matter. no. i think it's very strategic. >> you also say that you don't want to list your entire work history. i would think that shows you're very experienced. no? >> no, it does, but you want to select the information that is pertinent to the job but don't give the impression you've been in the world of work for the last 15 years if you've trying to work against this stereotype you're an older worker. you want to be very specific and, you know, add to your resume what -- just your most specific skills for that job. >> but looking at this one, won't employers be a little
8:43 am
suspect seeing that, your first job is vice president. >> yeah. the assumption is that you held other positions to lead up to that vice presidential job and, you know, we have another job listed that, you know, helps to support the fact that you were working prior to this position. but, no, honestly, i really think it is about putting forward the best you and not having loads of information that is, frankly, irrelevant to the job and gives away your age. >> i've never done this but a lot of people do. the header? should you is not put a header on? >> your objective is to get a job. it's just wasted space. it's wasted space. a fax number, a dated e-mail address. that just dates you. instead, one of the major concerns employers have is that you don't have a digital presence, that you're not comfortable with technology. so definitely have a linkedin profile on your resume so they

8:49 am
tiny part of the country, you can see the tiny little bit of states, have 18 of the top 50 private plans which are plans that you would get at a job or on your own. >> any reason why that particular area of the country does so as well? >> well, the plans just do better on the things that are measured such as preventive care, care of chronic diseases and customer satisfaction. >> let's talk about the top ranked plans. are there several companies that keep popping up over and over again? >> actually, several companies don't keep popping up over and over again. big companies, big brand name companies like cigsa and aetna you can't buy by brand name. >> top five there, any jump out at you? >> as you see, this is very much dominated by new england. if you don't live in that part of the country, you've never heard of these plans. they are associated with medical schools and they are very competitive with each other.

so, fortunately -- and the other thing to talk about all of these are nonprofit plans. going on to the next top ten, you see kaiser there. kaiser, which is a huge hmo, shows up very high ranking wherever it is. >> hmos or ppos. finding both your list there. >> by large, hmos do better than in these rankings than ppos but not so say there aren't good ppos. >> nancy mentioned i was surprised that the hmos scored so high because we often think of those plans as being very restrictive where you don't necessarily get to choose your providers or specialists. i think the ease of care makes is better for patients. you don't have to carry about your paper work and one person identifying all of the of your problems and all of your care. >> what do people need to look for when picking a plan? >> pick a plan based on your
8:51 am
needs in particular. if you don't mind having one single person organizing all of your care and you're not worried about being able to go out of network, an hmo would be a very good option for you. if you do want to have out of network coverage or you want to see a specialist directly you should look for a ppo or what we call a pos. that is a point of service plan. >> got you. >> finally, if you never go to the doctor and you know you're not going to use your health care, you might look for a high deductible plan that will lower your premiums but you have to keep in mind, should you become sick, you really are going to have a big out of pocket payment to make. >> you mentioned one way to save money. any other ways to save money and good quality health care? >> i think it's important to see if your employer offers what is called a flexible spending account. that is way where you with set aside tax-free dollars to pay for medical expenses that may not be covered by your insurance. things like contacts, glasses,
8:52 am
even the deductibles on your insurance can be covered by an fsa account. statistics show most implies don't take advantage of that so it's one thing to ask your employer -- i want to say on tuesday. hopefully monday is a holiday for you. >> some of our top rated plans are quite tiny. a little tiny one in western massachusetts that does a great job. >> okay. . nancy metcalf and dr. holly phillips, we thank you both. >> thank you. >> great information this morning. for more tips on choosing the best health plan, go to our partner in health, webmd.com and you can search health insurance. later a look at what is next for apple after the passing of steve jobs and who can fill his legendary shoes. you're watching "the early show" on cbs.

9:22 am
for many, seroquel xr, when added to an antidepressant, was proven more effective than an antidepressant alone at helping people feel less depressed. call your doctor if you have unusual changes in mood, behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients taking seroquel xr have an increased risk of death. call your doctor if you have fever, stiff muscles, and confusion, as these may be signs of a life-threatening reaction or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements, as these could become permanent. high blood sugar has been reported with seroquel xr and medicines like it and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death. your doctor should check for cataracts. other risks include increased cholesterol and weight gain as well as seizures, dizziness on standing, drowsiness, impaired judgment, trouble swallowing, and decreases in white blood cells, which can be fatal. use caution before driving or operating machinery.
